Mariann K. – Oct 17, 2019
I first came in to see Dr Malalis in so much pain. She took the time to explain to me why I was in pain and the steps she could take to improve my situation. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. I will and have recommended her to friends I know that are experiencing any discomfort like I was. Sincere thanks Dr Malalis.

Jim Hutchison in Sandwich, IL.60548 – Mar 08, 2018
I came to my first appointment worried that there would be no treatment for my arthritic neck. Dr. Malalis suggested neck injections and discussed with me where I might have the most improvement. I felt like I was a part of the treatment. I came in, had the injections, which were so much easier than in my imagination. The whole staff was so supportive. I did a few weeks of PT and my pain level has gone from a 8-10 consistently to days with NO pain at all. Dr. Malalis changed my life!!

In a rush to treatment, dr recommended a steroid that would have had similar effect as prednisone. As a new patient she didn't review my med allergieis etc. I luckily questioned the med. then she withdrew that treatment.
